Fix the nails as usual. Place them in a 10% aq. sol. of either sodium or potassium hydroxyde for 30 minutes.
Wash well and process as usual. The sections will stay in the slides but if you want another "layer of security" ad Elmer's glue to the slides and let it dry. "Fish" the sections from the water bath with this slides so treated.
